Infitiv: R&D Gas Sensor Engineer

About Infitiv:

Food loss is a major problem that directly affects the security of the food system and has implications for global climate change. Do you want to tackle food loss in innovative ways? Then join us at Infitiv.

Infitiv is an innovative startup with the mission to prevent food loss in the post-harvest stage. The company is developing a gas sensor that collects fresh produce quality indicators coupled with software recognition to monitor the quality decay during storage in the food-agriculture value chain. The data collected can be further used for evidence-based decision-making to optimize the storage operation and management. We are located on the HighTech Campus in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

We are looking for a hands-on engineer with the background of Applied Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science, or relevant background to contribute to the Infitiv sensor fabrication and development. The R&D Engineer will support, develop and execute research and development plans to fabricate and improve the gas sensor based on nanostructures.

Your roles & responsibilities:

• Fabricate the gas sensor based on nanostructures

• Characterize the gas sensor device using diverse techniques such as Raman spectroscopy, scanning electronic microscopy (SEM), and Four-Point probe measurements

• Design and conduct experiments to improve the gas sensor device development, including gas sensing measurements

• Develop novel capabilities for our sensor devices.

• Interact with the software team, providing feedback and input, from sensor point of view, on the system.

• You will report to the head of research & development and work closely with the Infitiv team, paving the way toward a successful gas sensor fabrication to tackle the food loss issue.

Your profile:

• Education in Applied Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science or equivalent field

• Experience with hands-on laboratory operations, ideally with special focus on working with nanomaterials

• Experience with at least depositions techniques such as CVD, PVD, drop casting, spin coating, and/or ink jet printing

• Aptitude to present relevant data and concise conclusions

• Propose new solutions and alternatives path.

• Familiarity with LabView, Matlab or similar software are highly appreciated.

• Excellent oral and written communication skills (English)

• Highly self-starting, ability to work independently and interact in a team

• Part-time is possible

What we offer

• Reasonable salary

• Opportunity to receive stock in the company

• A never-boring job that is at the very cutting edge of the gas sensor technological development

• A purpose-driven job to turn your knowledge and ideas into an impactful product, with positive societal and environmental impacts

• Access to HTXL and startup community with great learning, developing and networking opportunities

• Room for everyone's talent, a place where new initiatives and ideas are listened to and appreciated.
